Lagavulin is an iconic Islay malt, its intense and smoky spirit steeped in history for over 200 years. Nestled in a rocky bay still dominated by a ruined castle that was once home to the Lords of the isle, it seems as much their modern day success as the white-tailed eagle that soars high above the sea and shore nearby. Selected for its high peating level, this unique and small batch of Lagavulin has been matured in traditional refill American oak casks; the result is a perfect expression of distillery character, rounded yet proudly dimmed by time.
A special batch of cask-strength Lagavulin 12 year old from American oak refill casks has been bottled in this series every year since 2002. Variations between the different batches to date, which have often been vatted from whiskies at least 12 years old, make for fascinating comparison. Part of a collection of eight limited-edition cask strenght whiskies. The perfect gift for whisky lovers.
A powerfully smoky example of Lagavulin, youthful and vigorous, with bags of distillery character.
